Today I am sharing my versions of the latest two blocks in the Splendid Sampler Sew Along - Local Quilt Shop & Iowa.
I am a big fan of the technique of paper piecing so I was very happy that Jane provided a paper piecing template for her design, "Local Quilt Shop". House blocks are some of my favorite. I have made many for friends in the Cocorico Bee. You can find a few [HERE] and [HERE].
Iowa, designed by Sherri McConnell, is an adorable block. I chose to make it scrappy in pinks and reds. The corner background fabric is from one of my favorite vintage feed sacks.
The center fabric is a prized Japanese fabric I have had for years.
